I saw Star Wars fourteen times at the Yorktown Theater the summer it was released, with my friend Nickie. It had one of the largest movie screens I have ever seen, though maybe not quite as big as an IMAX. Architecturally, the building is not much of a loss, though it would be nice is something interesting went in that lot.
2550 Chapel Hill Boulevard was home to the Yorktowne Theater. One of the best movie experiences of my life was going to see "White Men Can't Jump" here. Seriously.
